Hello i am an eastern North Carolinian and i am looking for smaller pieces of both green and petrified Texas Mesquite wood. I want some green limbs in the 2-4” range and approximately 10” in length would be ideal. I would love to get a medium or large flat rate box of this stuff.

In addition, i am also hunting for some pieces of petrified Texas Mesquite, i am fully aware that this stuff is all over the place out there amongst those groves of Mesquite and on the ranches for i have myself spent time in Texas. Some pieces similar to the piece of petrified Texas Mesquite crotch in the photo below, would be excellent.

Just email me with your pricing and such.

Thanks guys, Chris

I have a bunch of mesquite but none is either green or petrified. Honestly I have never seen it petrified. I have some beautiful burl and some pretty highly figured regular mesquite. It is all at least 4-5 years old and plenty settled and dry. Let me know how big of pieces you are looking for and if any of this interests you. I would be glad to put you a box together if I have it. Not worried about money. You can send me some wood or something neat in return.

Chris, when it cools off here, in about a month or so, I have some mesquite trees that I’m going to be cutting out. If you’re looking for small pieces of green stuff for your duck calls, I should be able to help you out. I’ll favorite this thread so I’ll remember.

Tenontim, that sounds like an excellent idea. Actually i’m not going to be using the wood for my duck calls. However, the green wood limbs and petrified wood will be used for some other ongoing project of mine. But yes, to your offer, absolutely i could still use some of it after harvest.

If this wouldn’t be too much to ask, is there anyway you could anchorseal the wood’s ends if there will be a slight delay in shipment? I hate to ask this but then again if the shipment were delayed due to whatever reasons and i were to receive it checked and cracked, i wouldn’t be able to utilize the wood for what it is that i need it for.

2.5”-4” diameter limbs approx. 8-10” long or whatever lengths will readily fit into a medium or large flat rate box. Just send me a quote via private message including the shipping of a USPS medium or large flat rate box.

Thanks a million. Chris
